LeBron James was just asked if he would get a COVID-19 vaccine when he’s able to — and rather than firmly come out and say yes, he waffled … which is startling.

King James did a 20-minute-plus interview Sunday for NBA All-Star Weekend … and at one point he was asked how he’s been able to stay COVID-free and relatively healthy throughout the pandemic. Bron chalked it up to luck and faith … saying he just follows the protocols handed down by the league to a T, going straight home after he plays in games/practices.

Another ‘rona question was raised at the very end of the interview … a reporter asked if he himself would get vaccinated whenever that became an option, and whether he’d encourage everyone in the Players Association to do the same. He also referenced Adam Silver‘s recent remark that he was gonna leave it up to NBA players and not make it mandatory.

Silver said … "My hunch is that most players ultimately will choose to get vaccinated. They have to make personal decisions at the end of the day."
